Me and son got drawn for the TPWD dove hunt category. It's a one day hunt in Young county, about an hour away. Good thing is there is no permit fee! Anybody else get drawn for that hunt?

Congrats on the draw. I did not apply for any since they were all a long way from home for a afternoon dove hunt. Please post a follow up on the hunt so we can know how it went.

I put in for the young county one. No luck here, pending 2nd draw which I doubt there will be one. I put in for it because I have a deer lease near there. You should have a great hunt. When I was out that way recently the sunflowers, dove weed, and water all looked great. Lots of resident dove present. Be sure to run over to Newcastle for a hamburger from the "Hole in the Wall" while your there. They make the best hamburger around in those parts.

Thanks. Will do. This one is an all day hunt I believe (or limit out). The other locations were afternoon only. Looking forward to some time with my son!

Yes. Suprised me. This was one of the $10 entry, no permit fee hunts.

That's great Sniper John! My son and I look forward to seeing you there. I talked to the guy that runs the place we will be hunting on (Ed at Wingsport Depot). Nice guy! He said the field we will start on is 200+ acres. If that field isn't hot, he has 3-4 other fields within 20 minutes that he will move us to. He said the morning is usually good, but there are usually 3-4 times more birds in the evenings.

Either way, my son and I are looking forward to going. Not bad for $10 total for the two of us!

I believe you're the first one I know about that has hit on a "pending 2nd draw". That's pretty cool in itself. up

I don't know the statistics, but I doubt drawing 2nd draw is that unusual on some hunts. Since there is no preference point only option I know a lot of people who can't hunt this season or this month etc. are applying for some of the low odds hunts just for the preference point, or adding zero point non hunting family members to dumb down the odds to do same. Especially out of state hunters since they pay the same inexpensive $3 or $10 as us. But private land dove does not build preference points, so for this one at least it seems odd someone would pay the $10 to apply just to turn it down and let it go to 2nd draw.
